Family Tradition

The Miller family has a tradition of making their own pork sausages with a stuffer that has been passed down for generations. The time had come for the pigs we raised this summer to get butchered. Therefore, it was also time to make sausages. So, this is what they did 2 weekends ago. They have a special blend of spices that they have mixed in with the sausage while it is ground and then they run the bulk sausage through the stuffer. After this, the sausages are smoked. Luke & his dad with the stuffer:

Here are the hams, all seasoned up, waiting to get smoked:

And that, that's bacon:
Yum! We just tried the first of the bacon last weekend and it was delicious!
